The Kennedy Veil, A Thousand Shall Fall, & Inanimate Existence @ The Catalyst Sunday 9/14/14


Sunday 9/14/14

Death Metal
Northern California

The last hope for humanity is The Kennedy Veil. Sent by those who must not be seen, to save a planet that is not their own, in a world of greed, hate and complacency, they come to cleanse the earth of the spreading plague; the beast known as 'BRK-DÖN' (the Breaker of Downs) to deliver us unto the golden age of 'BALAST'N'. The Kennedy Veil may be our only chance...
In 2009 the world bore witness to a whole new brutality, sure to brace the metal scene for years to come. Ascending from the depths of the Northern California Valley, The Kennedy Veil unleashed upon the scene their own fanatical perspective of American Death Metal.
The Kennedy Veil started as a quartet composed of Casey Childers (ex-Forktung), Gabe Seeber (Alterbeast, Decrepit Birth, ex-Wretched Dawn), Cody Walker(ex-Skribble) and Shawn Peterson. The ensemble recorded their first album “The Sentence of Their Conqueror” with engineer Josh Williams at Metal Works studios and released a compilation of 8 visceral tracks which quickly grabbed the attention of the west coast. With the release of this album, The Kennedy Veil played shows relentlessly with legendary acts such as Cephalic Carnage, Exhumed, Cattle Decapitation, Macabre, Decrepit Birth, Origin, Divine Heresy and Abysmal Dawn.
In 2011, The Kennedy Veil came in contact with Unique Leader Records and was added to their devastating roster of modern death metal acts for a multi-album deal. With the departure of their vocalist Cody Walker, The Kennedy Veil auditioned dozens of vocalists and stumbled across local front man Taylor Wientjes. With his diverse vocal range and will to decimate the masses, the covenant was sealed.
In 2012, the band went to work on writing the follow up to “The Sentence of Their Conqueror” and prepared 11 dynamic and hostile tracks which would come together to form as the “Trinity of Falsehood” – a doctrine that will enslave the ears of the lawless and govern the damned into a frenzy of panic. “Trinity of Falsehood” is set to be released worldwide on January 21st 2014.

Divergent, uncompromising, and absolutely punishing; Santa Cruz, California’s “A Thousand Shall Fall” stand poised to continue what they have done for years. Create music untethered to the whims of labels, magazines, or blogs. To create metal that is unafraid to experiment, to enjoy itself, and to humiliate the inadequacy of environment. “A Thousand Shall Fall” greeted 2013 with the release of “In the Shadow of the Mighty,” they continue their growth and evolution in 2014 with the release of “Horizon.” Having recently wrapped production of their latest release the band is currently hard at work cementing tour plans and crafting the band’s first full length album for 2015.

Inanimate Existence was formed in Santa Cruz, California in 2012 by Joel Guernsey, Ron Casey, and Cameron Porras. Shortly after, the band started writing songs for a demo which was later submitted to Unique Leader Records. They were quickly picked up by the label and started writing their first full length.
On July 17th 2012, the debut album “Liberation Through Hearing” was released worldwide and had a great response even though the band had only been around for a short period of time at that point. After the release of their first album they went out and did numerous shows around the US and later did a full US/Canada tour in May 2013. Since then the band has released multiple albums and has toured internationally in support.
